Though, new extensions made marks and still making marks, but emergence of the Chinese in the industry is making a big difference that no human could categorically predict or envisage how lasting the trend could be. Though, there are some levels of fear of falling of price, but I bet you, the trend does not look like it will fall soon, based on many reasons behind the risen of the market price.

What are the factors that makes quad premium domains?
So on the above note, I realized the need to bring those factors for many domain name investors, especially, the startups and probably the end users who cares to know what are the factors that makes premium quad domains. With my studies on so many domain name sites and blogs, I brought you the below factors as found them for you, so that you can better learn the intricacies of making good investment decisions to success.
There Are Sub Categories of Quad domains:

Quad – is “four” or “4”, in the case of words; it means the combination of four letters. Or 4 number digits, in the case of numeric and mixed of letters and numbers, it then have the combination combos as the case may be, to make up quad domains.

What is Chinese Quad Chips:

Western Quad Numeric:
There is nothing Like Western Quad Numeric: The common believe is that all quads numeric are four in combination combos. It may be any numeric domains, be it all “zeros” or “4”or whatever combinations.
Chinese Quad Premium or Chip Domains:
Chinese are a typical native people who have meaning for every letter or number. They have the strong believe that those meaning matters to them and thus have influence in whatever they do.
Their Chip domain names does not include vowels - A, E, I, O, U and letter “V”, because letter “V” is not available in Chinese Pinyin and syllables. Chinese premium quad domains are consonants combination combos, consonants are their premium letters and prefer to buy any domain that are in that format and in any extension of their choice.
However, the domains that include non premium letters are not taken serious and recognized as non Chip and low in values.
Their numeric domains also have chip and non chip category. Chip or Premium numeric are those that does not include “double zeros” (00) or “single zero” (0) and number “four” or “4” though, they are in some cases consider single zero, if it comes as the last digit of the quad combo, example 1130.com, or 2310.com etc. Any domain that include double zeros are non premium and thus, a no go area for them. They recognized such as abomination in their native clans, because it has negative effect in their native believe.
However, all of the above laws or believes does not affect any pronounceable domains, if any domain is non premium or chip for Chinese clans, such could be premium for western clans. But the issue is that, the Chinese premiums are hotcake in the market today, and very liquid than the western quads. Premium Chips are Liquid in the sense that, you can buy them today and sell it in the next few days at a higher and profitable price.
